Georgia GOP: Paula Deen > MLK

I wonder if any of the respondents knew they were being trolled.....

Quote:
According to a new poll by the Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling, Republicans in Georgia have a more favorable opinion of Paula Deen than they do of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Favorability ratings with Georgia Republicans: Paula Deen 73/11, Martin Luther King Jr. 59/28

Deen, of course, was dropped by the Food Network after admitting that “yes, of course” she used the N-word, and amid other allegations of racism by former employees.

She makes food that have a reputation for being very unhealthy. That is no secret. Again, that is her choice to do that.

But to do that, continue to sell cookbooks and hide your disease (seemingly not caring, then, if others develop the same condition as you), then profiting off of people who get the disease... That says a lot about her character. All I'm saying is, she's clearly not a good person and she has chosen money over helping people every step of the way through this diabetes journey.

You can eat her recipes and not get diabetes. I don't know why she has to be the person to let others know you shouldn't eat a stick of butter every day.

She's not. Not any more than those who host Cupcake Wars.
Or a French pastry chef.
The hosts of that show, are still young though. So we won't know what health conditions they get in their 60's yet.

Remember, the racist charge has been debunked. Gotta find something else about her to keep the thread going. Underlying, such views, is really that they still think she's a racist but can't verify it.

She has the best damn cornbread out of any I've tried. Unbelievably moist. Most likely due to the amount of butter. I just sweeten mine with natural Stevia instead and add corn kernels...scraped from the cob fresh.

Because most people who do what she does don't profit off other people getting diabetes. She does.

Again, she's not hawking preventative diabetes drugs. She is hawking drugs you get after you have the disease. If she were a good person, she would have landed a full time deal, then swore off the habits that led her to her own diabetes condition. Instead, she has chosen to completely defy anyone who calls her food unhealthy. She had a moment to do the right thing and chose not to. That's her right, but there are people acting like she is a good person. She is not.

You want good cornbread, all you gotta do is switch sour cream for milk in any standard recipe.

Yeah, that doesn't really make her a bad person. There will be plenty of people with diabetes in the world with or without her cookbooks. To act like she made the US get diabetes and then profited is goofy.
But let's treat people like toddlers and assume they need Paula Dean to explain to them that bacon and butter 3 times a day is unhealthy.

Couldn't give a shit about Paula Deen, never watched her show. But your outrage is one of the more ridiculous tangents observed in a while.

I assume you are just as exorcised that The View now affords that vaccine decrying gunt Jenny McCarthy a platform.

Sour cream plus butter? That's a bit too rich for me.

She calls for the buttermilk too. It's perfect just the way it is. Try it.

I find labeling her a "piece of shit" says more about you as an overly judgmental person who actually brings them self down to that level.

She got a shitload of money from an endorsement deal with a pharma company. She is profiting big time off of people getting diabetes, while still pushing habits that we know contribute big time to Type 2 diabetes. A preventable condition.

Again, she has a choice to swear off her unhealthy recipes but refused to because it would sink her cookbooks and empire. She had a choice to turn down a pharma deal and instead maybe endorse preventative drugs or a service that reduces diabetes rates. She chose money over doing the right thing. That makes her a bad person.

It is not a ridiculous tangent. There are plenty of people in this thread who agree with me. I don't know anything about the View but I'll look into it. I know diabetics and have spent a lot of time dealing with diabetes care, a lot of it as volunteer service. I have seen the horrible things diabetics go through. I have a right to speak up about it.

Who, specifically, is she defying that calls her food unhealthy?

I don't see that she's doing anything different than millions of other Americans who rely on pharmaceuticals more than changing their diets enough.

Besides, there's always someone out there who criticizes others in the food industry. Deen even faced charges of animal cruelty last year when she became a spokesperson for Smithfield Hams. Critics say SH mistreats hogs.

BTW, according to this article, Novo Nordisk who makes the diabetes drug Victoza, contacted her to partner with on a website of diabetes-friendly recipes BEFORE they even knew she was diagnosed with it. She's lost 40 pounds; her husband 60 pounds. But she still eats fried chicken just not once-a-week anymore. Moderation is what she does. So every 6 weeks now instead. So she hasn't given all her southern food up. Sounds like change to me.

She sounds naive more than being "evil" if you read this link. She was even in denial about having diabetes.
